Create Live Hosted Site

InstaWP Live is a service where users can create a fully functional WordPress website ready for live traffic. This means that InstaWP not only creates websites, but also provides high-performance back-end code and specially configured servers for your website, speeding the development process and ensuring that the site is ready for public access.

In this documentation, we will explore the steps to create an InstaWP Live hosted site.
